G2X TAKE: SeKON, a woman-owned management and technology consulting firm, that specializes in providing large-scale health IT programs in support of Federal Government customers, just beat out three other bidders to be awarded an 18-month task with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Office of the Associate Director for Communication (OADC). This task, valued at $6.7M, was competed and awarded using the CIO-SP3 SB GWAC.
A focus for this requirement out of OADC is on website development, usability testing and support, and application development and programming support for CDC’s COVID-19 website. The website experiences much traffic domestically and internationally and requires these professional services to maintain up-to-date, relevant, and easy-to-read information.
- SeKON’s recent experience with CDC includes providing continued support as a Prime on a 5-year eHARS Reporting and Maintenance task they were awarded last month and a $28M DHAP IT Systems Development, Maintenance, Enhancement and Support task the team was awarded last summer to support the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP), the division charged with the mission of preventing HIV infection and reducing the incidence of HIV-related illness and death.
- In addition to their work at CDC, this CIO-SP3 SB and CMS SPARC Prime can lay claim to a broad client base that cuts across the broader Federal Health sector, to include the Defense Health Agency, CMS, NIH and HHS. More here.
- Led by CEO, Angela Wilson, SeKON made a number of hires in 2019 to support growth across the Federal Health sector, to include adding former Cerner Exec, Tiphanie Forst as Senior VP for Federal Health Growth; and Theodora Petrakis as Executive Vice President, Strategy and Business Development Operations.
- Following its twenty-three year history as a technology consulting firm, SeKON announced last year their new brand identity and the launch of their redesigned website and messaging, http://www.sekon.com.
- SeKON, who was ranked #13 last year in the list of Largest Women-Owned Businesses in Greater D.C. was recently named to the updated list of NXT UP firms poised to make big waves in the Federal sector in 2020 and for years to come.
